I'm a bad blogger

Like you haven't noticed. I've been meaning to blog about the awesomeness that was Martin and Jesse's wedding a few weeks ago in Pittsburgh. Wedding at the Phipps Conservatory, reception at the PPG aquarium (now I understand why my friends Laura and Eben are obsessed with the octopus), caricature artist on hand at the reception (don't ask to look at his drawing of Mike and I - we look about 50!), and some of the best wedding reception dance music I've experienced.

I've been meaning to blog about all the fun that is going on at work. The conference I went to with Bernanke, Paulson and Chair Bair, the great line that came out of that conference "your home is not an ATM," the fun we've been having with IndyMac and the fun that is to come in the future, the lunch today with my coworkers where Sharon and Ed spent the entire car ride to Ben's Chili Bowl shouting expletives at the other drivers on the road, and then when it's time to eat, they both are staring at me and Ed says "Aren't you going to ask the Lord to bless our food??" Crazies.

I've been meaning to blog about my 349 note streak on Guitar Hero the other night. And this was not on the easy level - this was on medium!

I've been meaning to blog about the great stuff I've been reading lately. This article on John McCain was super interesting. He wrote it after he returned from his captivity in North Vietnam. And this article from today's Washington Post. Read it if you're wondering who Obama's greatest admirer is. Made me chuckle.

And finally, I've been meaning to blog about these ladies from America's Got Talent. I've watched them soo many times I can't even tell you!

Have I mentioned that I love my coworkers?

Well if I haven't, I do. Only Mark could pull off the great thing that happened today in the PDD meeting. Agenda item 3 looked like this:

3. Quarterly Financial Data

  • Call Reportz – all bankz – This is the schnizzle.
  • Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Past Due loanz.
  • UBPR all bankz.
  • UBPR single bank, fo sho.

Call Reports are the schnizzle, by the way.
